(October 27, 2014)
I apologize for being so late in writing. Guess I was so excited to win I forgot about the web site! Everything is brighter and sunnier after a win. Plus my daughter and her boyfriend were with us for the weekend so that took my mind off football a little as well!!
First, Hall certainly wasn't the caliber of team we had been playing the last few weeks, or the next two. But the best thing about the game was we came out and played to our level and executed and took care of our business and concentrated on Sheridan and not Hall. I though all phases of our team executed very well.
First with the Defense. They threw their first shut-out of the season and that is always big, regardless. I think the defensive coaches lost a meal over that one. After moving the ball the first time they had it, we settled down and played very well the remainder of the game. Logan Loftis was our Farm Bureau Player of the Game. He led the team in tackles and had one interception and two passes broken up. Brady Bibb led our Defensive Backs with 8 tackles and played very sound deep. Maleek Caton had 7 tackles to lead the defensive line. Clayton Palmer had 6 tackles, two for losses and broke up a pass as well. We continue to get better every week on defense.
Offensively, we played better than we had in a while. The touchdown pass on the first play was a big lift that got us off to a fast start, something we had struggled in previously. That pass was to Chris Wheeler, who is one of several players that plays both ways for us. Dustin Reid threw the ball well and read the option consistently throughout the game. Brockton Brown had his fourth 100 plus yard game of the season. Eli Anderson grades the highest of our slots and had several key blocks on Brockton's runs as well as others. Brian Canada graded out our highest among offensive linemen. Brian is only a couple of weeks into being able to play being out with a knee injury the first six games of the season. Teddy Hughes and Jacob Atnip were not far behind him.
It was good to get to play a lot of our younger players. Taylor McGarity scored his first varsity touchdown and Tristan Hatley played fullback carrying the ball seven times and never played fullback before Friday night. Winning and playing a lot of people is always good for morale and a reward for those unsung heroes that have to play on the scout team all week.
This week is a different story with Pine Bluff coming to town. They are very big, very fast, and very good. Certainly one of the better teams in the state 7-A North Little Rock and 7-A Fort Smith Northside. It goes without saying we will have to be at our best against them. It is Senior Night here for our seniors' and other Fall Sports as well. Hope you can get out and thank our seniors for their dedication and efforts to Sheridan High School.
